Absolutely gorgeous massive space, by the time our hour was up my pup was still trying to take in all the new smells and didn’t want to leave. Great secure fence, and the chickens were so cute! Really appreciated the seating and water bowl, we had a great time and can’t wait for our next visit!

My 2 pups had a great time at Shannon’s sniff spot. Easy access, lots of room in yard for them to sniff and explore. Part of yard is grassy and part woods so best of both worlds! They are both exhausted from their fun and enriching adventure!

So much land! Nice safe fence all the way around. Huge fresh bowl of water left right in the middle of yard. Shaded areas to play in and plenty of places (in shade and in sun) for owners to sit while dogs play. Will def be back!!

Our dogs had a blast! The space was huge and had lots of different spots to sniff, run, and play. There was water ready for us when we arrived. It was easy to park and get into the yard. We will be back!

Spacious, fully enclosed, and well mown yard with walking paths amongst some pines and shrubs in back. My Golden loved exploring the area. Hosts were incredibly flexible and accommodated our travel plans, provided plenty of clean drinking water and an assortment of balls and Frisbee. Easy to park. Will return! See the pic of her playing hide and seek with the blue ball in the trees ♡

We loved this spot so much! It had so much room to run around and about half of it was wooded and the other half was grass that was well kept. It was perfect for my dog who loves the woods and also loves to roll around in the grass. I even got to sit in the swings for a little bit while she sniffed every inch of the yard. Shannon was very quick messaging me back for any questions that I had. I highly recommend this spot!!

Shannon’s property is awesome! Lots of room to run and completely fenced in, which is important to us. Equal parts clear/grassy area and more “woodsy” area, but it’s all enclosed. And it’s on a quiet cul de sac, so the area felt very safe. We would highly recommend for anyone coming through the area!

It was great for my 3 dogs. There were 2 sections for them to play in. Water was provided and a easy way to pick up and dispose of waste. My dogs enjoyed their time off leash! Thank you Jennifer it is a welcome change to their routine
